Mechanical and Materials Characterization

Facility Type: 

This facility contains a large variety of equipment to characterize the mechanical and physical properties of a wide range of materials. The facility focuses on using the many materials characterization aspects to perform failure analyses on components. Samples can be analyzed to determine the failure mode, and solutions to prevent further problems. Samples can be also prepared for the Electron Microscopy or X-ray Diffraction Facilities, if necessary.
